'Rich in historical detail... Tremayne has produced another winner.' - Publishers Weekly
His oath has been broken...



Bran Mac Morgor is the shining star of Conchobar Mac Nessa, King of Ulaidh and his Champion. On the way to battle for his king, he and his charioteer, Finn Bann, receive a warning:

Turn back.

Bran laughs; he is Bran Mac Morgor, Conchobar's Champion, and fears nothing.

Disregarding the old woman's warning of his jealous heart clouding his soul, he pushes on to battle and locks with Maine Moepirt, a chieftain of Connacht.

He has broken an oath - a sacred code of the honour of battle. Cutting down Maine Moepirt might become his biggest regret...

Branded by the mark of a raven's claw and pursued by the anger of the gods, his exile becomes a quest; for love and for an answer to his cruel fate.

Aided only by his faithful charioteer, Fionn Bann, the proud and bitter Bran defies the treachery of allies and the savagery of battle to reclaim his honour as a Celtic warrior.

But the curse of his destiny is inescapable ... and soon, Bran will realise that in his final triumph there lies a terrible evil ...

Raven of Destiny combines the imaginative intensity of myth and fantasy in an exciting and gripping saga.
